Growing up The Great Gatsby was one of my all time favorite books, as I’ve probably mentioned on here way too many times with all the 1920′s styles flying about…and I think I’ve also mentioned feeling like I am going to be greatly disappointed by the new movie version. That all being said. I still can’t help being excited about it and was naturally curious about the trailer when it was recently released. So for today I have a very theatrical shoot from Elle France in the spirit of the Great Gatsby as well as the new trailer. What do you all think? Is it gonna be awesome or terrible ?

Which I’m obsessed with, as I am with all things including Bill Murray, also photographer Jake Chessum does a phenomenal job of creating playful quirky and colorful shots worth looking at:
